ready for wednesday's rumble. >> well, the president's the president. he was at the u.n. giving two major speeches. he's been dealing with all sorts of international business, domestic business. he is at the white house a lot of the time preparing and i can tell you that his -- they have had to cancel times when he might or might not have been able to do preparation. it's my understanding mitt romney spent four or five days secluded somewhere. had five debates in 24 hours or 48 hours. and has senator portman with him every day on the airplane practicing. i'm here. i'm not traveling with the president or doing any of this. >> more expectations setting from senator kerrly and also making the point that being the job of president gets in the way of debate prep and leaving town and leaving washington helps for the president and doesn't hurt, wolf, picked a battleground state, nevada, to do the debate prep and going to other states. >> not far from denver, either. >> an easy jump over. also learning new details about how mitt romney's preparing for his first face to face contest with the
. the u.n. -- the united states classifies hamas as a terrorist organization. now, the group which controls gaza has been accused of torture, police brutality, and arbitrary arrest. the criminal justice system reeks of injustice according to human-rights watch. there has been isolated cases of abuse. they deny that it is systematic. our correspondent reports >> security forces in action. soon after they came to power in late 2007. human-rights watched says that police brutality remains a problem not only in the streets but inside the prisons. >> in this report we found that the authorities are arbitrarily detain people, to nine people access to the lawyers, and torturing people. in the worst cases are executing people based on a concession that was given under torture. we spoke to one young vocal opponent has been arbitrarily arrested dozens of times over the last five years. >> this continued for several days. they burned my foot with a cigarette lighter. another help to me down and they burned me again. >> in the prisons, this is not uncommon according to the report. unusually, h
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
warning world leaders that iran is very close to building nuclear weapons. in his speech to the u.n. general assembly on the threat posed by iran making headlines across the globe. leland vittert is live in jerusalem with reaction there. leland? >> reporter: gregg, the most interesting thing here is this is the first time the israeli prime minister has really laid out what would bring about an israelly strike. the first time there has been a true threat made. it is on the front page of every newspaper here. here it says the red line, spring 2013. when he did up at the u.n. draw that red line it was at the 90% mark, meaning right before iran began work on a nuclear bomb, when it completed the enrichment process. that was definitely a movement of the timeline. there had been a lot of talk about a possible strike sometime before the u.s. election. the speech at the united nations seems to have pushed that off a little bit. the prime minister made a very tough case against the iranians for supporting hamas and hezbollah, both organizations that used suicide bomb attacks around the world
start." mahmoud ahmadinejad is back in iran. he's expected to speak next hour after his final u.n. speech. his official photographer never left new york. he's seeking asylum. will he talk? next hour, we'll speak to the first official white house videographer about what he might know. >>> be aware of exploding washing machines? a safety alert for one really big appliance. all that and much more coming up in the next hour of "early start". >>> first, they are no longer one hit wonders. filipino prisoners going gangnam-style. this is going viral. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our partner in brazil, shell is producing ethanol - a biofuel made from renewable sugarcane. >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. progresso. in what world do potatoes, bacon and cheese add up to 100 calories? your world. ♪ [ whispers ] real bacon... creamy cheese... 100 calories...

, this group did attack the u.n. building in algiers some years ago which is, you know, somewhat defended. so they do have some capacity. but i think we need to be careful, you know, this is not al qaeda central suddenly capable of attacking the united states. >> sure. >> reporter: this is more a group that has traditionally been kidnapping westerners, targets of opportunity. they are expanding in mali. i think the white house is doing the right thing by taking the threat seriously. go ahead. >> peter, finally, we know just looking at the big picture islamists have been suppressed for decades by arab dictators. now you have these overthrown dictate ors and militants rushing to fill this void, this vacuum here. what is the state of play? >> reporter: you can make an argument it's not an accident that so many came from countries that have benedien dictatorship. it reduces the amount of militancy in the region. which isn't to say there won't be complicated in counies like libya going forward. at the end of the day more democratic middle east is going to be reduced the appeal of these kind of jih
here. we will not solve our compl nflicts with libel speeches at the u.n. we have to sit together and negotiate together and reach a mutual compromise in which a palestinian state recognizes the one and only jewish state. [applause] israel wants to see middle east of progress and peace. we want to see the three great the legends that sprang forth with respect.n -- to deis they seeks supremacy over all. they want to destroy israel and america. you want to distinguish freedom. the want to end the modern world. militant islam has many branches from the rulers of iran with the revolutionary guards to al qaeda terrorist and the radical list lurking in every part of the globe. despite the differences, they are all bruited in the same bitter soil of intolerance. that intolerance is directed first to their fellow muslims and then to christians, jews, brutus, hindus, secular people -- hindus, secular people, buddhists. i am sure of one thing -- ultimately, they will fail. life will penetrate the darkness. we have seen that happen before. some 500 years ago, the printing press helped pry eu
. as you talk about it, last week at his speech to the u.n. general assembly, the president went through a list of what he considered to be his big victories, osama bin laden being dead was one and ending the war in iraq was another one. september was the deadliest in terms of attack since august of 2010, which is pretty shocking since the war is technically over. on top of that reuters has some footage that we have for you of literally pictures of the iotolla from iran. pictures all over iraq now as iran is trying to gain and perhaps succeeding at gaining more and more power in iraq. this is a big question that obviously is going to be a problem for whatever president's next but not something president obama wants to be talking about right now. >> with iran obviously they're having sort of its own singular way inserting itself in the elections. we heard from ahmadinejad last week and heard from netanyahu literally drawing that red line on the metaphor kal bomb. >> right. >> could we hear from iran between now and say november 6th? >> well, this is pretty amazing. obviously when prime mi
groups. ambassador john bolton is former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. big picture here. what do you think the cost is to the united states on the world stage that we're continuing to discuss this infighting who knew what when and not going out and getting the people that committed this act? >> well, i think it shows that there's desorganization within the state department, within the administration, about exactly what happened and i think that is a signal of vulnerability potentially at other embassies in the middle east or around the world. i think the consequence we need most here we need to find the people who actually perpetrated the attack and either eliminate them or get them in custody and start questioning them. that's potentially on the way. of course the administration is leaking out today in the press that they're about to do that, another security violation while we're on the subject. but certainly the way the administration has handled itself in the aftermath of this tragedy has not covered it with glory. jenna: how would we appropriately go an
, they trotted out the u.n. ambassador who said this is a spontaneous demonstration bread by a hateful video. now, that is one of the most disgraceful performances i have ever seen. first year cadet at west point would have told you that that was -- you know, there is -- people sitting around benghazi, grab your mortar, honey, we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. >> gretchen: but senator, looking ahead then to these next debates, i don't know if the president will have it any better off because foreign policy, when we start talking about this, when mitt romney starts talking about it or the moderator, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer and it may be the first time that the president is forced to answer questions about libya. >> well, he did answer questions about his foreign policy. remember, he just said there was a few bumps in the road. iraq is unraveling. al-qaeda is coming back. afghanistan is in total disarray because of this killing of americans by afghan military people and it's because the president keeps announcing we're leaving and it's overruled his military advi
government, to nato, to the u.n. special envoy to syria. and nato held emergency talks specifically on this issue at their headquarters in brussels. they were invoked under article iv saying any one ally in the military alliance can hold consultations if there's a threat to one of their security. a big question will be what will happen after this. this is the first exchange of fire really that we've heard about. but it's important to note syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down a turkish military reconnaissance jet last june killing two pilots. the turks were of course furious. all their allies condemned this, but we didn't really see any steps taken in the immediate aftermath of that. the turks are now saying that they will respond to any type of provocation. it will be important to see whether or not more military steps will be taken by the turks. and we're getting reports that they're going to be addressing this very security issue with the syrians at a meeting of the turkish parliament on thursday morning. >> and i'm sure there's intense conversations going on between turkish au
